No one close to Hardik’s talent: Sehwag

‘If there was someone, Pandya would not have made it back into the team’

All-rounder Hardik Pandya has talent unmatched by any other player in the Indian cricket team, says big-hitting former opener Virender Sehwag.

According to Sehwag, Hardik has become irreplaceable in recent times. He played a pivotal role in Mumbai Indians’ record fourth title triumph in the IPL recently, coming into the lucrative T20 league after enduring a tumultuous phase following his outrage-evoking remarks on women on a chat show.

Having served the ensuing ban, the star all-rounder pummelled 402 runs in 15 innings in the IPL at a staggering strike rate of 191.42, and a highest score of 91.

“There is no one even close to Hardik Pandya’s talent with both bat and ball. If there was someone, the three-dimensional players picked by BCCI, Pandya would not have made it back into the team,” Sehwag told cricbuzz.com.

Hardik is part of the 15-man Indian squad for the upcoming World Cup and is expected to leave his mark with his exploits.

Along with India teammate K.L. Rahul, Hardik was flown back from Australia after the duo made some controversial remarks on the chat show, ‘Koffee with Karan’ earlier this year.
